    Really awesome setup!!! Cool animations and really good teacher!!! Thank you for your effort πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  7. I think that little bug you ran into around 1:30:00 was because you set environment variables while the netlify server was running and those are loaded in only when a server starts. When you republished, it forced the server to restart and then it pulled in your environment variables.

  8. I can feel the amount of effort put into this tutorial, appreciate that! Thanks

  9. Great tutorial very thought trugh. With a strong explanations and also great examples.

  10. Let me preface this by saying…you are amazing sir! This is without a doubt, the greatest webhook vid of all times!! I’m attempting to build my first event driven serverless webhook architecture and have been tasked with using AWS only. Could you possibly point me in the direction of some tutorials, repos or videos that would help with this? I basically just need you sir to quickly create a tutorial using AWS instead of Netlify…please…and the more puns the better!
